This exercise on the Constitution requires small groups to design a visual metaphor that expresses the concept behind one of seven principles: popular sovereignty, federalism, republicanism, separation of powers, checks and balances, limited government, and individual rights. While the anticipatory activity is weak, the main exercise is effective in eliciting higher-level thinking and collaboration among group members. The metaphors are shared with the class while the audience members take notes on the other six principles.
